Competence is strongly linked to cognitive ability and social experience. Research has shown that adolescents aged 14 are capable of the same decision-making capacity as adults when given a hypothetical scenario. Notwithstanding this, the capacity for a young person to consent is linked to their cognitive development rather than age alone. The young person’s level of schooling, their ability to function in other areas of their life, and additional responsibilities, such as employment, are also important factors to be taken into consideration. A young person living independently of his/her parents may be considered to be more capable of making decisions pertaining to his/her health than one still living with his/her parents.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
